Ever wonder what cars can run biodiesel? Will the 2011 cars work with biodiesel? Do you need to make modifications? Can you get a diesel smart car? A small truck? Do you need to do anything special to your car in the winter? Can you buy an old Mercedes diesel and run biodiesel in it?

The NW Biodiesel Network is hosting its first Biodiesel Car Show and Education Forum focused on mechanical issues on Saturday, August 20, from 12-3 pm. We will have cars there for you to view and experts there to answer your questions.

Feedstock and Agricultural Issues

What role do feedstocks and agricultural issues play in the food and fuel debate? How do they affect sustainable biofuels production, and agriculture and farm policy? Are they part of a sound environmental policy? An energy policy? Can we grow sufficient feedstocks to displace petroleum?
